  1. The Meaning of Life

    This morning I had parking lot duty at school. I have this duty Mon, Tues, Wed. at 7:45. Ugh, right?

    I was standing outside, making sure that the line of cars kept moving along, that the kids were getting inside the gate, that nobody was getting run over in the parking lot, all that good stuff. (We actually had a fender bender the other day, so now I'm all on edge!)

    One of my students from last year came over with her younger sister. They were telling me all about ...
  2. Big-ish purchase tomorrow!

    Okay for me anything over $75 on one thing is a big purchase. I am a cheap-skate, what can I say? But with National Novel Writing Month coming up (eek!) and my sticky keyboard Alphasmart Pro that probably dates back from the 1990s, early 1990s too I am not talking about 1995 and up (because then I'd be dating myself), probably won't help me write my novel this year. The keys stick, it's slow, and oh yeah the cords no longer really work with the technology I have.

    Now we have one computer ...

    Even though I feel like I should get a whole day off today, I'm like a shark- I can't stop swimming. I did have a productive day around the house, but there is still more to be done for school. If I'm not grading papers, I'm writing them. I'm supposed to be writing a 2 page reflection paper right now!

    I did manage to take a quick break this afternoon and see a movie with my fab alterna-husband. My "real" husband is playing poker tonight, so that frees up my evening ...
  5. A Big Scare

    by , 10-13-2007 at 07:57 AM
    So, I got a trip to the doctor this week during which I was pretty sure I was having a heart attack and was afraid for my life.

    It ended up being pneumonia and the coughing and fluid in my chest was causing the chest pains and so I'm home and drugged up and feeling much better. That's a great thing.

    I was terrified and I had all the typical worries on whether everything in my life was in place. Sadly, it wasn't. I truly admire people that can answer yes it is to that question. ...
